But what about men and women of color who, for its first century, weren’t invited to attend classes at the Carlisle campus, but did have roles in serving the men who founded it - sometimes as slaves - laboring for the contractors who built it? They are now getting their stories told as Dickinson completes a years-long project of sorting through its tangled history with slavery and race.
